The Edusave Character Award (ECHA) 2015 for our students is opened for nominations from now till 25 August 2015. ECHA is introduced by MOE to enable schools to recognise students who demonstrate exemplary character and outstanding qualities through their behaviour and actions. The award also supports the school’s efforts in nurturing students of good character and values, who are active contributors and concerned citizens: Youth of Character, Keen to Serve.
The objectives are as follows:
To send clear and strong signal of the importance that MOE places on character and values, on par with the achievements in the academic domain; and
To recognise outstanding students in each school who are exemplary in character, and who can be a role model to inspire others.
